Natalie has a bachelor’s degree in late Medieval and early Renaissance English history. It’s been incredibly useful in her day-to-day adult life.
Natalie was given her first camera by her father at the age of 11, and has rarely been seen without once since. She joined Circa as a videographer after covering the 2016 election for McClatchy Newspapers’ Video Lab. Her favorite stories to cover typically include either politics or quirky Americans—preferably both at the same time. She is a firm believer in the power of video journalism to both get laws changed and to build empathy and understanding in what is currently a pretty divided nation.
Hailing from “the other Washington”, Natalie is a beer AND coffee snob. She’s also the proud owner of both an REI membership and a National Parks annual pass. In the life she attempts to lead outside of journalism (what’s that?), Natalie plays and watches a lot of soccer.
Natalie holds an MA degree in journalism from CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, but she really doesn’t miss the way the New York City subway smells.
